Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Home Depot has expanded its reach into the children's market with a line of products ranging from toys to educational books. In this book, The Home Depot Big Book of Tools, children are introduced to the world of construction and the tools required for just about any construction project. In addition to addressing each type of project, such as plumbing, wallpapering, and shelving and storage, the book offers tips and a detailed description of the tools that may be needed throughout the process. Also included is a tool glossary at the back. While the information is extremely thorough and the book is well-written, the subject matter is somewhat dry and may not hold the attention of young children unless they are a "Bob the Builder" wannabe. Older children who are particularly into building and engineering may find the book useful at times, but more as a resource than something accessed frequently. Readers will find this to be a very basic, fact-filled book that doesn't offer much other than to occasionally fill a quick reference need when a youngster is beginning a new construction project. 2001, Cartwheel Books/Scholastic, $12.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Emily Cook AGES: 4 5 6 7 8
